Academic staff who teach or directly manage degree programmes in the Engineering & Mathematics disciplines are invited to book onto the Changing the Learning Landscape (CLL) workshop ‘Social Media in Engineering & Mathematics’. This free one-day workshop will provide a practical introduction to the use of social media to enhance learning and teaching practice in the STEM disciplines.  Through a series of presentations,  activities and discussions, led by academics from the Engineering & Mathematics discipline areas, participants will be introduced to social media approaches and see discipline-focused examples of social media applied in teaching practice.

Topics covered include:

• Assisting Engineering & Maths staff use social media in their teaching

• Using Facebook for Peer Assisted Learning in Mathematics and Computing Science

• Team based learning within Engineering Education: Bringing the social into the classroom

• The benefits of using Augmented Reality to enhance the student experience in Engineering & Maths.


Up to £5,000 of funding will be available to event attendees in total, ranging from £500 to £2,500 for small-scale projects to embed learning technologies into practice.


Please share widely with colleagues who may be interested.

Changing the Learning Landscape (CLL) is a HEFCE-funded programme supporting and encouraging higher and further education institutions to make a step change in how they adopt effective and strategic uses of online technology in teaching and learning.


The programme is a unique partnership between the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education, JISC, the National Union of Students, the Association for Learning Technology and the Higher Education Academy (HEA).
